Alrighty well, here’s the new blog. I would absolutely love to say the last one was successful, but that would be a lie; fact is, I am perhaps the world’s worst blogger. Of course, I’m saying that in a blog post so who knows, maybe there’s hope for me yet.
So why now? Why a new blog?
I have a couple answers to those questions. Through the past, oh, year now I guess? I’ve gone through the toughest, most painful, feel like you’re a sailboat on the ocean during hurricane Katrina, actually looking to see if there’s a knife sticking out of your chest because that’s how it feels, moments of my entire life. And I would love to say things are looking up and getting better, but the truth is, I’m really not sure. And that’s the toughest part.
I can say with a passion that I hate it. I hate living in this sort of quasi-limbo, liquid state where at any moment something else could just drop out of the sky. But the more I think about it, the more I realize, that’s life. Certainty I think is a fallacy we construct to give us the feeling we have some control over life. It’s pretty comical when you think about how small we are, and yet how in control we sometimes feel.
But more on that later; for the moment I digress. What can you expect from this blog? Well, besides being the only other reader besides my mom who will read it (hi mom!), you can simply expect to hear my thoughts on this thing called life that we’re all trying to do to the best of our abilities. This is the place I can work out the thoughts that I hope to put into a book someday, assuming I’ll get eventually sort through my messes enough to put it all down on paper.
So for now I leave it to the blogosphere. Happy reading.
